Big Little Lions Release Debut EP Paper Cage On May 6th
The ferocious songwriting duo of Helen Austin and Paul Otten, known as Big Little Lions, will be releasing their debut EP, Paper Cage, on May 6th, 2014. Their sound is a dynamic fusion of feel-good and deep emotion that leaves the listener with a strong emotional reaction – the result is sweet and soothing folk that has been described as “Pomplamoose meets Mumford & Sons.”
Both successful singer/songwriters in their own right, Austin and Otten have hundreds of TV, movie, and ad placements between them. They met while both on a conference songwriting member success panel and started the band a couple years later from afar, with Helen based on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada and Paul in Cincinnati, OH. Working together as Big Little Lions, Helen is the heart and soul while Paul is the blood and bones.
Even before releasing any music, Big Little Lions has been featured in various TV placements. Their song “This Road With You” has appeared in MTV’s Catfish and ABC’s The Vineyard, as well as three Ikea commercials.
On the upcoming release, Otten tells us, “This EP is a perfect example of the power of music. The songs are a collaboration between 2 people that barely know each other, but share a kindred musical heartbeat. The result is a collection of songs that radiate joy and sound like they were written by 2 people that were destined to make music together. I can’t wait for people to hear what Helen and I have created.” Austin adds, “I hope that the music will put a smile on everyone’s face. I want the songs to make fans feel positive about life.”
The debut EP Paper Cage by Big Little Lions will be released on May 6th, 2014.
